Can you take together 10 mg lexapro (escitalopram) , 25 mg lamotrigine 1200 mg fish oil and 1000 mg acetaminofen ?
Yes, but...: Lexapro, (escitalopram) Lamictal, and Fish Oil are often co-prescribed. If fish oil is being used for therapeutic benefit, its good to know the EPA content of the capsules. EPA (not total fish oil weight) needs to be around 1000 to 1500 mg per day to impact mood (FYI). Acetaminophen at 1000 mg - as an occasional dose - is fine to take s the above. Frequent use, though, is to be avoided. ...Read more

Yes: there are no contraindications with any medication, as far as I know. Magnesium is found in many foods, and magnesium deficiency has become more common, particularly with use of drugs like omeprazole (Prilosec), esomeprazole (Nexium) and similar drugs which markedly reduce stomach acid and impede magnesium absorption. ...Read more

Interactions with adrena smart. Currently I am taking 300mg wellbutrin (bupropion) od, naproxen 500mg prn, tramacet prn ( naproxen /tramacet for grade 3 sprain)?
Hard to tell : Research is needed to best answer these types of questions. Unlike fda approved drugs, dosing for supplements like adrenasmart are not standardized and they are not rigorously researched, making their potential for drug-drug interaction unknown. Tramadol plus wellbutrin (bupropion) plus adrenasmart could conceivably precipitate seizure. Question is if adrenasmart is even needed for your "adrenal exhaustion". ...Read more
I take Epilim Chrono 500mg which isn't actually equal Depakote ER. (500mg Epilim = 333mg sodium valproate + 145 mg valproic acid),so when to test?
Random: The idea is this medication is supposed to generate a steady state level after about 3 days. Peak and trough levels matter if you are looking for toxicity or sub-therapeutic levels with medications with a short half life. Also Depakote has a very wide therapeutic level (50-100) Consider obtaining a Vit D level (which is often low) and checking ammonia after being on this medication a while. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
